In his novel, A Dream for Hannah, Jerry S. Eicher creates a story of young love, trust, and knowing when to let go. Sixteen-year-old Hannah Miller, an Amish girl in northern Indiana, struggles with the concept of love, torn between her romantic ideals and the dull reality everyone around her seems to embrace. When tragedy strikes her peaceful community, she finds herself having to make a painful decision between her dreams and what she believes to be right.

Although Hannah someday desires to be like the ideal wife of Proverbs 31, her only romantic experience is from the eighth grade, when she told her friends she thought Sam Knepp was cute, something she did only to impress the other girls at school. Naturally, her ideas of love are completely turned upside down when she meets Peter, a striking blonde-haired Amish boy who seems all too eager to gain her attention. Unfortunately for her, the flirtatious Peter has a bit of a rebellious streak that her parents find unacceptable, while Sam has started to get ideas that she might make a good farmer’s wife. Despite her parents’ advice, she continues to talk to Peter, but when he starts pleading with her to see him secretly, she finds herself questioning her feelings, uncertain of whether or not she should trust her heart. Just as she’s starting to figure things out, the community is struck by a tragic accident, altering her perspective forever. Distraught and confused, she heads to Montana, looking for peace and possibly the truth about love, completely unaware of what God has waiting for her.

Although A Dream for Hannah contained several interesting ideas for a story, Eicher didn’t pull quite pull them together. The overall story felt contrived with its many sudden plot twists—from injuries to romantic problems—occurring within mere pages of each other. Sadly, because Eicher tried to fit so much information into one book, the characters were somewhat underdeveloped and stiff, making it difficult to sympathize with their plights. There is also a surprising lack of courting, considering that this is supposed to be a romance novel. There isn’t much dialogue between Hannah and her various romantic interests; instead, most of the references to love are the confused and sometimes depressing thoughts of Hannah, most of which have to do with her refusing to dream of love again. While I feel that this book could have been a thoroughly good story if it had been longer and more developed, in its present state I can’t give it my top recommendation. – Chelsea Molin, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I have just finished reading the complete Hanna's Heart series by Jerry Eicher. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Hannah's adventures & the tragedies that she endured for one so young & the way that she ultimately found the happiness that she was searching for.

    Jerry Eicher's religious background brought a deeply touching story line to the books that I found very refreshing & uplifting.

    I look forward to reading more of his books.

    3 StarsA Dream for Hannah By Jerry S. EicherHarvest House PublishersReviewed by Diane A. BrownWhen young hearts dream of love it can lead to perilous paths. Unprepared, with high expatiations, those dreams can be easily shattered.I found the writing vivid and the people and places easy to visualize. The story line, however, had some definite dry areas and seemed to drag in places. In my mind, Hannahs character needed deeper development so the reader could better understand her heart and her choices. Teenagers however, Amish or otherwise, make spur of the moment decisions that can lead to devastating consequences, a fact that is definitely brought out in the story. Truth is also found in the need for honesty and openness in communication between parents and teens that can help prevent tragic outcomes. There are valuable lesson here for the growing young heart.
